I have decided to lose my little extra weight that I have been packing around. Since I had my multiple open heart surgeries, I gained my normal weight back plus about 7-10 extra pounds. I have been eating healthy and exercising but just haven't been able to go below 130 lbs. I want to be 122-125 weight range at 5'5" and get back into my size 6 clothes. None of then fit me anymore and I am not going to buy a bunch of new clothes.
I am starting a new weight loss program. it is by Dynamite Speciality Products. They tested it on the folks that worked there and it was wildly successful. Other folks have lost over 30 lbs and still are loosing.
Part of the program is take measurement and pixs of yourself so you have a baseline. I will post my measurement and pixs of me (dressed in similar clothes so you can see the before and after pixs). Most of my weight is the "muffin top" area...aka, above the waist. Most of you may think that I am not overweight, however the extra pounds around the waist needs to go. It's called abnormal fat and is the last fat to lose. Once I reach my goal, then my body is re-set and I am good to go. You do this program for 18 days per bottle and my goal is to reach my desire weight at that time then, I am done with the program. Other folks continue with the program to lose more weight. I'll keep track in my blog so you can see how it goes. I look forward to losing the weight. I also have to follow a food diet program during this time frame. If you are interested, I am offering it at my cost for the rest of the month to people who can pick up at my place in Carnation. I have fours bottles available. Email me for details.
Dynamite made a new product called "180". This homeopathic medicine is designed to break your addiction to carbohydrates and sugars, while helping burn fat reserves
from their site:
Obesity in America has been called the country’s greatest health challenge ever. I want to take a moment to discuss the scope of the obesity problem and why Dynamite has chosen to get involved in this issue. We are in the midst of an obesity epidemic. In 2007, 74.1% of adults in the United States were overweight or obese, with related medical treatments costing an estimated $117 billion. These figures have doubled and tripled in the last 15 years. In fact, a U.S. Department of Defense report notes the military must recruit about 15 percent of youth, but only one-third are eligible. About one-fourth of college aged individuals are obese, making them medically ineligible to serve in the military.
For more than 28 years, Dynamite has been a supplier of fine vitamins and minerals, with the intent of providing every living being the highest quality of life through proper nutrition. This idea has been our family’s focus for generations and will continue to be so. Addressing this problem is part of our mission as a company.
As we dug further, we discovered a better, more complete product. Dynamite’s 180™ was born!
The results have been amazing. In October 2010, , Dynamite’s operation manager, and I began the testing process and results proved to be fantastic. Both he and I were active before, running and doing other exercises, but just had fat we could not burn off, almost as though our bodies locked the fat deposits and wouldn’t release!
Obesity is not a disease. It is a curable condition to the addiction to unwholesome foods. This is why we are introducing Dynamite’s newest product, 180. 180 was developed to break the cycle of food addiction, cleanse the body of food toxins and reintroduce a clean, healthy diet.
Rest assured 180™ helps stave off any hunger pangs that a restricted diet may cause. With the introduction of 180™, thousands of extra calories begin to flood the system from the abnormal fat being metabolized.
Regaining health isn’t all about restricting calories and losing weight. The body needs to heal emotionally, as well. That is why 180™ contains an array of herbs and roots to aid the body as a whole.
•Larch Flower Essence has shown to give a person a feeling of greater potential, confidence and a release from self-limiting behavior and beliefs.
•Borage Flower Essence that enhances feelings of encouragement and balance.
•Eleuthero Root to assist in reducing inflammation and support the liver as it eliminates toxins.
•Burdock Root to aid the body’s filtering organs: liver, kidneys, and lungs.
•Red Clover Herb is used for conditions related to the heart, lungs, liver and blood.
•Guggal Gum to aid the thyroid in overall function, and with respect to metabolism. In Ayurvedic medicine, its uses consist of aiding in cleansing blood vessels, inflammation, obesity, easing joint pain, thyroid problems and digestive disorders.
•L-Carnitine has been proposed as a therapeutic treatment for many conditions because it helps reduce oxidative stress. In addition, L-Carnitine is a nutrient that helps the body turn fat into energy.
Yes. If you do nothing but eat better and exercise you will loose weight and feel great. Here is the catch...you knew that last year, and the year before that, too. If you did it, you wouldn’t be reading this now. 180 is a tool that makes this process easy and doable.
Can’t I just eat the food part and loose weight?
The 180™ program is based off of Dr. A.T.W. Simeons’ 1950’s research that concluded there are three different types of fat in the body:
•Structural (visceral) Fat found in and around the muscles, cushioning organs, padding of bottom of feet, etc.
•Normal (dermal) Fat found is directly under the skin’s surface and provides the soft cushioning between the skin and frame of the body.
•Abnormal (adipose) Fat found under the dermal fat and not available for use by metabolism until the other two kinds of fat are used.
Abnormal fat can be viewed as “famine fat.” It is stored by the body for emergency famine. Yo-yo dieting contributes to the storage of this type of fat because the body begins to question the availability of fuel (food). When calories are restricted, the body stores all the fat it can to save up for the lean times!
Dr. Simeons’ research produced a plan that results in an average weight loss of .5 to 2 pounds a day of abnormal fat when accompanied by a VLCD (very low calorie diet).
Most calorie reduction plans will not produce the best results for those individuals with an abundance of abnormal fat stores because their bodies will begin burning the wrong kind of fat. When a low calorie diet is introduced in the system, the normal reserves of fat are used up first. As a result, most people look gaunt and drawn after a reduced calorie diet. When the normal reserves of fat have been reduced, however, the abnormal fat remains intact. Without using 180™ in a reduced calorie diet plan, the body will burn structural and normal fat.
180™ works to release the abnormal fat stores and make them available to be used as fuel. By following the protocol precisely the body will “burn” the abnormal fat, while preserving muscle, normal fat and structural fat.
Re-Setting the Hypothalamus
The hypothalamus is located just above the brain stem. It is known as the master gland and is the supervising center in the brain that links the body’s two control systems; the nervous system and the endocrine system.
The hypothalamus controls body temperature, hunger, thirst, blood pressure, heartbeat, gastric reflexes, maternal behavior, blood pressure, immune responses, carbohydrate and fat metabolism. The hypothalamus is responsible for the control of food intake!
It may sound amazing, but it is the hypothalamus’ job to make the body salivate for an apple, rather than a piece of chocolate cake. If the hypothalamus is working normally, then a person will be more inclined to crave a nutritionally, well-balanced diet. Food that is void of nutrition will not have the same pull or crave-producing impact.
This is why some people can have one bite of their chocolate cake, push it to the side and say, “That was enough.”
The hypothalamus is much like peripheral vision. When driving on the highway, even though the driver’s peripheral vision assists him in making the tiny steering adjustments to keep the car in between the lines. The hypothalamus, when functioning normally, works in the same way. It assists the body by steering the appetite and promoting more effective metabolism to keep the body at a certain weight, or “set-point,” just like the lines on the highway.
For those who have a hypothalamus that is not functioning properly, it is like their peripheral vision has become distorted. The lines on the highway, so to speak, become wider and wider, or not visible at all. The body’s hunger becomes more and more intense, more food is craved and eaten, more fat is consumed and stored. Now, the body’s “set-point” has risen on the scale to a new high and isn’t coming down.
Using 180™, it is possible to lower the body’s “set-point” and retrain the hypothalamus to make the necessary adjustments and keep it there, forever!
There is another piece to the intricate puzzle:
In the body, there is a hormone called leptin. Leptin is like a messenger between the hypothalamus and the fat stores. When your body gets to the point where is has stored enough fat, leptin runs to the hypothalamus to tell it to stop collecting the fat.
In a normally functioning hypothalamus, it would understand leptin’s message and stop storing extra fat on your body. When the hypothalamus is not functioning properly, it is as if it does not hear or understand what leptin tells it. So the hypothalamus thinks it still needs to store excess fat. And it does. It keeps storing and storing because it has not received the message that there is already enough fat stores. This is called Leptin Resistance. The more important part of this equation is that leptin is produced by the abnormal fat.
It is clear why it is so crucial to rid the body of the abnormal fat. Once the pounds of fat begin to reduce, the amount of leptin can begin to return to normal levels. This will start the process of healing the broken system of communication between fat stores and the hypothalamus. When the communication is restored, the hypothalamus will once again prompt the body to decrease food intake through appetite and increase energy output to burn up any extra calories eaten.
It is for this reason that most weight reduction programs fail their participants. If the body doesn’t get rid of the abnormal fat, the high levels of leptin in the body will keep the hypothalamus confused. In its confusion, the message is to continue to store fat and keep the appetite elevated.
